And quoting the newly edited version of the original post does not mean the earlier version was clear on this point. The clarification is not present in the following quote of an earlier version of the original post: http://forums.kixeye.com/showthread.php?t=251468&p=2230593&viewfull=1#post2230593]

Just keep digging. Swag does not say "40-44 can still attack/be attacked by Levels 35-39".
(1) "Attack range remains at +/- 5 Levels up to Level 39." Note that it is silent as to whether or not level 40 may attack bases +/- 5 levels from level 40 and above that he says specifically "The +/- 5 Level range is remaining, but would no longer apply to players level 40 and above (currently level 29)." So he directly contradicted your statement that level 44s can attack 5 levels down.
(2) "Levels 40-44 can still attack/be attacked by Levels 35-39 due to the +/- 5 rule still in effect for those lower Levels." So levels 39 can attack 5 levels up.
Seriously, you make me want to sell you some collateralized debt obligations.

I said this before if this is put into effect the higher level player will stop playing due to the lack of targets then lack of interest kixeye is caving to low level players who don't want to spend money on the game and in the process pushing the players who do out the door! Everyone is saying yea I like it now but they haven't changed anything they just worded it differently. As a level 36 right now I would only be able to hit a level 35 that's about half way to level 36 and hit level 36s as long as there not close to leveling up to 37 so that allows me to only hit about 30 to 40 people and that's if we all move to the same sector.

why does kixeye insist on fixing things that are not broken. I could think of many other things that kixeye should be spending their time on that are actually broken instead of wasting valuable time and money on something that isn't broken.
You want to know why there is huge imbalance between lvl 28 and lvl 30. its not the players fault it is kixeye's fault!
you throw raid after raid in which the majority of your lower lvl players have little chance to win yet they bust their **** trying, thus artificially inflating their lvl.
Build times, repair times, research times, upgrade times are getting beyond stupid yet Kixeye continues to ignore those it shouldn't take more than 10 days max to build a single ship even with siege weapons!
the community has been begging kixeye to address these times, we have even been begging kixeye to introduce either a 2nd shipyard or a dry dock so we can build multiple ships or refit multiple ships at the same time. Again Kixeye you ignore those requests. Blue prints take forever to find! tier 3 blueprints have what a 2% drop rate? we the community have been telling you since you released the blue print system that the drop rates were to low, finding all the blue prints would take to long. again Kixeye you failed to listen to us.
Time and again kixeye you ignore the community, all your interested in is the almighty $$$$. I can't blame you, you need the $$$$ to stay open but eventually the $$$$ will dry up when you have pissed off enough of us that we stop spending our money!
Paul don't you think the better business practice would be to listen to your long term players? they have been telling you how to fix your game since it came out over 2 years ago.
But Paul at the end of the day it doesn't matter what kixeye does to try and even the playing field, because it is up to the player to design a good base, it is up to the player to research the right things in the right order, it is up to the player to control the pace in which they level up, and it is up to the player to get off their **** and go find the blue prints.
Paul if you truly wanted to help the lower levels you would actively discourage these no hit in sector policies that most sectors have, and to help discourage them put an incentive in place to make more people want to hit bases, and for more people to actually go Fight fleet vs fleet. And no i'm not saying put the attack button back in, because lets be honest sniping a baser hitter coming out of a base isn't real fvf. its just some coward with instant repair subs adding repair time to a fleet not designed to fight fleets.
Also Paul if kixeye truly gave a **** about its players, then you wouldn't ban people from the forums that post constructive feedback about your games. just saying.

I'm pretty sure that players in the 23 - 28 level range would disagree with you.

It is something to consider, but I can't make any promises. Still, you can stack Streamlining 3 and the new speed module for a nice boost.

Uh huh, and what % of this post directly addressed the New Level Structure? Anything less than 100% is NOT constructive and does not belong here. The forum rules really are not that hard to abide by.

But I am reading this right a current 29 will be able to be hit by anyone above them. If he couldn't defend against a level 36 as a 28 I doubt he will has a 29. I am lvl 32 so really doesn't matter to me personally, but you have made it better for some and worse for others. As for the crying of the higher levels you will be able to hit more bases than you can now so what is the problem. A level 29 will become a level 40 which now makes them avail to level 35+ who could not attack them before.

The new system adds about 5 levels to each current level. So to compare where we are vs the new system we would have to have a +25/-25 to still hit the exact levels we currently are set to. So if we really want to adjust that so a level 36 player can do only a +3/-3 in the current attack Bracket then the new system will need a +15/-15 to insure that we can still maintain team work and to increase the bases total to a respectful amount. Also this address the need to keep higher level players from hitting too low. What Kixeye is proposing is too steep of a cut to the up down rule and will hurt this game in the long run.

One question: Swag, your initial description said that each level currently requires 40% more XP than the previous level. However, it looks like that number should actually be 50%: each level seems to require 1.5 x the number of XP for the prior level. Is that wrong and could you give us some more details on how the leveling formula will work after this update?

Horrible revamp. You're giving higher levels more farming bases by attacking lower levels. This changes nothing except the "sector" rule -/+ 2....Also Higher levels need to stick to their own level within -/+ 3 range, under no circumstances should a level 36 player attack a lv 29 player, period. Make this simple, chnage the -/+ 5 attack rule to -/+ 3 attack rule, keep everything else the way it is. Higher levels are already smiling and eyes glowing to attack lower level bases by 6 level difference, unacceptable Swag. Thank you.

Umm i think you should read the full post again. A level 36 player cannot attack a lvl 29 now or after this update
